Congratulations! You've got a bun in the oven, and you are looking forward to meeting your new little one. However, there's one thing you need to keep in mind - what you eat now can have a massive impact on your baby's health. Unfortunately, not all food is safe for pregnant women, and knowing what not to eat when pregnant can be challenging without some guidance.
Thanks to technology advancements, we introduce the 'What Not To Eat When Pregnant' app that every expecting mom must-have. The app provides you with relevant information regarding which foods are off-limits during pregnancy clearly indicated by categories ranging from beverages & drinks down to seafood or fish.
Sushi? Say "Sayonara"!
Surely sushi lovers may very well loathe this category because raw fish is no-no during pregnancy as it typically houses potentially harmful bacteria and parasites like Listeria monocytogenes or Vibrio vulnificus (sounds nasty). Such microorganisms could lead directly or indirectly cause complications like miscarriages, stillbirths, premature deliveries onset of sepsis(Another word that means blood infection)in newborn babies delivered from affected mothers; hence severe anxiety hangs around this subject.
But hey! Don't despair just yet – opting for cooked sushi rolls instead would make an excellent alternative option since they pose minimal risk (Better Safe Than Sorry, right?)
Below is an overview of other food categories pregnant women should shy away:
Soft Cheeses Are A No-Go Area????
Avoid soft cheeses such as Feta cheese made out of unpasteurized milk(Yes Mama Goat is cute but sorry Mama, we don't want her milk). All types mentioned above harbor potential risks for contracting listeria borne illnesses responsible for causing meningitis infection buildup known as encephalitis among infants resulting in death(We don't want that, do we?) Good news for Cheese enthusiasts is there are several safe cheese options readily available and everything you need to learn about them are on the app!
Just Can't stress enough No alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Though studies suggest minimal alcohol intake may be harmless but generally recommended to prohibit consuming it entirely since it could harm your baby negatively; causing Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) resulting from abnormal development affecting facial features like eyes or ears & intellects of the unborn child.
But hey! this just means you have nine months of partying ends with mocktails get exotic, show off those bartending skills - and be creative without any risks – thank us later☺
